Regardless of where you are from in the world, you’ve undoubtedly been influenced by the richness of hip hop culture in some way, shape or form.  During this experience, you’ll get the chance to reminisce and learn during a rare, immersive guided adventure. Ride through Harlem and travel through the Boogie Down Bronx experiencing classic backdrops with real-time narratives from iconic, charismatic hip hop pioneers.  Plus, how many tour guides you know get spotted and shouted out on the streets?

 

This tour will take you from Midtown Manhattan, to the site of the first ever hip hop party, plus secret battle sites, historic clubs and famous music video and movie locations. Travel with us through the NYC streets and check out some of hip-hop’s most important landmarks, like:

- Graffiti Wall of Fame

- Harlem World

- The Apollo Theater

- Yankee Stadium

- Famous Murals Dedicated to Legends like Big L, Kool Herc, and More

 

There will be ample time to step off the bus, so you can take selfies in front of iconic street murals. Plus, you’ll get the chance to interact with our celebrity guides.  You’ll be transported back to the early days of hip hop with exciting, first-person stories and classic soundtracks, giving you insight into the history and growth of this unparalleled art form.  You’ll get the chance to watch a real b-boy and b-girl dance session...and you can’t leave without participating in our internationally renowned “Dance Cypher,” where you can show us your freshest moves.  But that’s not all!

 

This tour is one that appeals to every one of your senses. Listen to exclusive freestyles from our tour guides, such as legendary emcees Grandmaster Caz, Kurtis Blow, Rahiem, Johnny Famous, Roxanne Shante, Reggie Reg and others - plus up and coming artists...and you may even get a shot at spittin’ a “hot 16” in the spotlight during our famous “Show Your Skills” segment.  There will be time on your own in the Times Square area before and after your 3-hour tour at 2pm.
